  • Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA Reductase Inhibitors
  • Macrophages
  • Quinolines

abstract

  • The present data demonstrate that pitavastatin prevents OxLDL uptake by macrophages through PPARgamma-dependent inhibition of CD36 expression and suggest that pitavastatin could modulate CD36-mediated atherosclerotic foam cell formation.
